Great interview from Reid Hoffman, cofounder of LinkedIn

Reid Hoffman gives advice for entrepreneurs

Some of the most interesting parts of the article are the following:

"Hoffman believes that you have to be contrarian in your thinking, you must break out of the noise. You also have to believe in your product and not shift too easily away from your core goals."

"When Hoffman is looking for businesses to invest in, he enjoys those executives who know their product so well, they don’t need the whole hour to do the pitch. “If they’re sharp, they should be able to pitch in 2-3 minutes,” said Hoffman, who knew within 3 minutes of Airbnb’s pitch, Hoffman knew he wanted to invest."
